Japanese national university

As of 2007, there are 87 nihongo|national universities|国立大学|kokuritsu daigaku in Japan, while there are 89 public universities and 568 private universities. [cite web |url=http://www.gakkou.net/05data/daigaku/h18_soku.htm |title=日本の大学 学校基本調査速報データ |date=2006 |accessdate=2007-12-19] National universities, especially former imperial universities, tend to be held in higher regards in higher education in Japan than private or public universities.

In 2004, the National University system underwent partial privatization. Each national university has since 2004 been incorporated as a nihongo|"national university corporation"|国立大学法人|kokuritsu daigaku hōjin and given considerable autonomy in its operations. Faculty and staff are no longer a nihongo|government employee|国家公務員|kokka kōmuin working for the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
